Question

A $1,500\mathrm{~kg}$ car sliding on frictionless ice at $15 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$ hits a stationary, $2,500 \mathrm{~kg}$ minivan. The two vehicles are locked together after impact on the ice. What is their speed after impact?

A. $0 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$

B. $5.6 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$

C. $7.5 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$

D. $15 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$

Step 1

1 of 4In this task we have to calculate speed after collision if known information are:

$\begin{aligned} &m_1=1500 \text{ kg}\\ &v_1=15 \text{ m/s}\\ &v_2=0 \text{ m/s}\\ &m_2=2500 \text{ kg}\\ \end{aligned}$

First, we have to define momentum before and after the collision.
